April's shape is changing.
Animal Adventures says they have a back-up plan and will go live from their Facebook page of the feed.
It seems like April the giraffe has been "ready to give birth" for a few months, right?
Sarah Roffe, giraffe team manager at Chester Zoo, said: 'For a little while we could just see two spindly legs poking out. At Animal Adventure Park, however, there's no such danger, with just the keepers and fans watching on YouTube eager to applaud the birth when it finally takes place.

In a sign that the famous animal is finally ready to give birth, her diet habits have shifted from qualifying as a picky eater of grain and hay to a pregnant female with a substantial appetite, reported Fox News 8. We can not retain offspring, as it would lead to incestuous mating and undermine the genetics of the program and species. On Monday, giraffes were born at zoos in Toledo, Ohio, and Cheshire, England.
Well, according to Animal Planet, a giraffe calf is usually born weighing between 100 and 150 pounds, measuring in at 6 feet tall.
Animal Adventure Park began streaming on February 23 on YouTube showing April preparing to give birth, drawing worldwide attraction.
"April's website, aprilthegiraffe.com, includes a link for buying apparel from baby clothing to adult-sized hoodies imprinted with a giraffe's head and "#Aprils View Crew" along with the park's name and location. We've got to stand tall for these wonderful animals. Male giraffes also are not part of the child rearing process.
Animal Adventure Park might have gotten their due date wrong.
April's pregnancy was catapulted into global headlines late last month after YouTube briefly yanked the zoo's stream following complaints by animal activists that it violated the site's policies concerning "nudity and sexual content".

The park also posted the following facts on their Facebook page. Once her calf is born and she is done nursing it, he or she will move on to another facility as it's rare to keep family members together with fear of incest.
"The neat thing about giraffe labor is that they instinctively hide the labor signs because in the wild, if they were making it very clear they were in labor, every hyena and lion would sit tight and wait for mom to become vulnerable", Patch said. This is Oliver's first calf, but April knows the drill - this will be her fourth.
